At the Spa tops terrific Father's Day for Outwork
Sunday, June 20, 2021
Outwork's 2-year-old filly At the Spa tallied her first stakes win of her career Sunday in the $100,000 Fasig-Tipton Debutante S. at Santa Anita, just two hours after the WinStar stallion collected his first stakes winner of the afternoon with Outadore's commanding win in the Jacques Cartier S. (G3) at Woodbine. 

With three stakes winners and seven stakes horses to date, Outwork is tied for the top spot on this year's Second-Crop sire list. 

At the Spa, who won her May 7 debut by seven lengths, found herself in a battle with Laurel Canyon from the outset of Sunday's five-furlong race. The duo was side by side until upper stretch, when At the Spa began to edge clear. She was kept to task to the wire and safely held off Munny Penny to win by 2 1/4-lengths in :59.79 on a fast track.

“She pretty much showed how good she was first time out, she fell on her head leaving there and picked herself up to still win easily that day,” said winning jockey Tyler Baze. “Today she had to fight it out a little bit and she prevailed. She's matured so much from the first race, she's just getting better. It's going to be a bright future for her.” 

The winner is owned by Tom Beckerle, Saul Carrillo and Terry Lovinger, the latter also the bay filly's breeder. At the Spa is the first foal out of four-time stakes winner Spa Creek.
